    Trying to decide which product to use, looking for advice, recommendations, testimonials on what works/looks good/was easy to apply.

    I've looked closely at a product called Liner Xtreme ( Welcome to Liner Xtreeme ) which looks pretty cool, but still trying to make a decision.

    Any input???

    Dragging this up from the grave, just saw the post since I haven't been on here in forever.

    If you are still looking at doing the bedliner, do yourself a favor and stay the hell away from Keystone bedliner. I put 3 layers on my truck (GMC Sierra) from the body line on the door down, sanded and wiped down with acetone before and between coats, and it flakes off every time I drive it. It looked great when I put it on, somewhat smooth, kind of like an orange peel texture but more pronounced. Once there is one chip in it, it will flake like crazy.

    I used Herculiner in the bed of the truck, and it has held up MUCH better. Doesn't look quite as good as the Keystone did, but it has held up to a couple years of construction work and wood hauling so far.

    My neighbor actually bedlined his entire late 80s Suburban with a bedliner called Monstaline, and it looks great and has held up as far as I know. You can get different colors, as well as a UV resistant additive to put in while mixing.
